Already working on a five-year, $35 million deal that ran through the 2021-22 season, Dallas extended the agreement through the 2022-23 season as well as giving him a raise, according to Stein.
Carlisle, who led the Mavericks to the NBA championship in 2010, has compiled a record of 464-407 (.533) record since assuming the position in 2008.
A college player fist at Maine and then at Virginia and an NBA player for the Boston Celtics, the New York Knicks and the New Jersey Nets, the 59-year-old Carlisle is the third-longest-tenured coach in the league, behind only San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich and Miami’s Erik Spoelstra.
